Complete reef-ready aquarium 140 gallon . Fully loaded and automated with Neptune Apex. This aquarium was my covid project. The tank was only set up for a year before I took it down and put it in storage. It was very well taken care of and everything is in like-new conditions. Storage unit is climate controlled to protect equipment. I had this tank set up in my house and unfortunately I moved out of state and had to downgrade to an apartment, which is why I’m selling this set up. It absolutely includes everything you need to professionally set up a successful reef aquarium.

Asking price is $11,000. I spent well over $30K for brand new equipment, mostly from Bulk Reef Supply. If interested, please email me and I can show you the tank at my storage unit. Below is everything that is included.
